Punch it Up at Fairy Fun Friday

Hello friends, thank you so much for stopping by today to check out my sample for Fairy Fun Friday. This week, we want you to show us how you can embellish your work using punches. There are so many wonderful punches to choose from these days and we're excited to see all the variety that will be entered into this challenge. For my card, I used a Marth Stewart punch, nothing to jazzy this week. I had planned on doing something a little more special, but honestly when I finished coloring this image, I really wanted to let it take the center stage. Isn't it gorgeous? It's brand new digital image from The Prairie Fairy. I don't think it is even in her store yet, but it will be very soon. I was a bit nervous to color it because I usually don't have good luck coloring watering cans. But this colored up beautifully and I was very pleased with the result. I love the overall color palette, especially the designer paper. I think it looks very Old World, maybe with a slight French flavor to it.

Products Used:
Digital image from The Prarie Fairy, sentiment stamp from Tim Holtz, Stampers Annoymous, SU Floral background stamp
Paper: DP from Raspberry Road, SU CS in River Rock and Chocolate Chip, Flourishes White CS for the image
Ink: Copics, Old Paper, Creamy Caramel, Vintage Photo
Accessories: Spellbinders dies for the die cuts and the handmade flowers, large brad from Michael's, bead cap from eBay, Versamark, clear EP, spiral clip from SU HodgePodge Hardware, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Stickles

I hope you will stop by Prairie Fun Friday to see what the other designers have created this week. And maybe you could stop by their blogs to see more of their wonderful work.
